Run Time: 100 Minutes

After Love

 

 

Joachim Lafosse

France/Belgium, 2016

 

Marie and Boris seem to have it all—a modern home; sparkling, loving twin girls; good looks—but this is all they have. We enter the marriage mid-crisis, and thanks to a camera that never wavers from its domestic witness, we see it through to the end in this beautifully crafted and delicately acted chamber piece. Boris (Cédric Kahn) is a loving father who has become an unwelcome stranger in his own home, a bull in an all-girl china shop. Marie (Bérénice Bejo) wishes he would stick to his own days and ultimately move out. The family man routine becomes a joust, the children are subtly, inexorably weaponized, and still we as viewers are locked in the frame of a home we’ve by now inhabited. The film’s French title, L’economie du couple, exactly captures the tension between capital and labor in marriage, an equation of give and take.—Judy Bloch
